Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Firstly, drill the egg ornaments in center of top and bottom of the egg using 7/32nd drill bit. I made 3 candlesticks, one with two eggs, and other ones with 3 and 4 eggs. Depending upon the height of candlestick you want, you can use eggs accordingly.
Make an approx ½-inch deep hole into piece of circular woods using 3/16th drill bit. One candlestick would require 2 wooden pieces, one on top and one as a base.
Paint wooden tops and bases in your desired color and let it dry for some time.
Insert dowel rod into the hole of the circular wood (base). Then slide eggs ornaments with holes onto dowel rod to the preferred height. Cut off the left dowel rod.
Repeat the process depending upon the number of candlesticks you are making. I have made three candlesticks of varying heights with 2, 3, and 4 eggs respectively.
Glue the wooden bases into cut off dowel rods.
Place candles on your candle-holder, you can keep it at your mantel or use it as a centerpiece. For more Easter Ideas visit our Blog.
